What Is SMCI?

Student Movement For Christ International (SMCI) is an evangelistic campus ministry led by Evangelist Mike Redick.  It was bourne out of the evangelistic missions fervor of Gospel Light Christian Church when the LORD brought together the dynamic combination of Paul Choo and Mike Redick. It all happened in Singapore during a move of the Spirit that began in the year 1999.

From it's humble beginnings with just one worker--one surrendered lady with a vision--it has grown to a staff of 90 full-time workers (plus many part-timers and student workers) ministering daily-- doing personal evangelism, discipleship, Bible studies, serving in their local churches, and even church planting when there is no local church who will partner. 

By God's grace, SMCI see's literally 1000's saved and discipled during each year. This past semester SMCI had 8000 students enrolled in weekly Bible Study/Discipleship on more than 200 campuses on 7 islands. 


The LORD has opened the door for SMCI to provide Advanced Biblical Studies as well:

"People don't usually stay in campus ministry for a lifetime.  It is our responsibility to prepare our workers for whatever the Lord has in mind for their futures--not just to use up their youth in this very taxing ministry.  Thus, we instigated the GPI (Grow Point Institute) which takes place yearly during the month of April.  SMCians are given 30 hours of Biblical Studies and receive a Diploma upon completion. This takes about 5 years!" 
--Evangelist Mike Redick, SMCI Int'l Director 


In just 13 years, the LORD has allowed SMCI to be part of winning, growing and sending out foreign missionaries, pastors & pastors wives, lay workers, full-time campus workers,  and Biblically grounded SMCians into the world!
